Only When You Leave
Spandau Ballet Lyrics


Layin' in the after glow
I only wanna learn what you know
But now you're leavin'
How many hearts must you break
And how many calls must I make

But now you're leavin'
In this world all that I choose has come unbearable
But love is in your touch
Ooh, it's killing me so much

Ooh, only when you leave
I'll need to love you
And when the action has all gone
I'm just a little fool enough to need you
A fool enough too long
Only when you leave, you'll leave in danger
Ooh, I'll make sure that you pay
So give a little passion to a stranger
And take this soul away

I only wanna make things last
So how could this have gone so fast
And now you're leavin'
How many times must I learn
It's only when you've gone that I burn

And now you're leavin'
In the end, all that is left has come unbearable
It's hard to change your mind
So leave it all behind

Ooh, only when you leave
I'll need to love you
And when the action has all gone
I'm just a little fool enough to need you
A fool enough too long
Only when you leave, you'll leave in danger
Ooh, I'll make sure that you pay
So give a little passion to a stranger
And take this soul away

Layin' in the after glow
I only wanna learn what you know
Ooh, but now you're leavin'
How many hearts must you break
How many calls must I make

But now you're leavin'
In this world all that I choose has come unbearable
But love is in your touch
Ooh, it's killing me so much

Only when you leave
I'll need to love you
And when the action has all gone
I'm just a little fool enough to need you
A fool enough too long
Only when you leave, you'll leave in danger
Ooh, I'll make sure that you pay
So give a little passion to a stranger
And take this soul away, uh, no, no, no, no

Ma So

Laying in the after glow,
I only want to learn what you know,
But now you're leaving...
How many hearts must you break?
Or how many calls must I make?
But now you're leaving...

In this world, all that I choose has come unbearable
But love is in your touch
Ohh, it's killing me so much

Only when you leave
I need to love you
And when the action has all gone
I'm just a little fool enough to need you
Fool enough too long
Only when you leave, you'll leave in danger
Oh, I'll make sure that you pay
So give a little passion to a stranger
And take this soul away

I only want to make things last,
So how could this have gone so fast?
And now you're leaving...

And now you're leaving...

In the end, all that is left has come unbearable
It's hard to change your mind,
So leave it all behind

Only when you leave
I need to love you
And when the action has all gone
I'm just a little fool enough to need you
Fool enough too long
Only when you leave, you'll leave in danger
Oh, I'll make sure that you pay
So give a little passion to a stranger
And take this soul away.

Even in the after glow
I only want to learn what you know
But now you're leaving
How many hearts must you break?
How many calls must I make?
But now you're leaving.

In this world all that I choose
has come unbearable
Love is in your touch
Ohh it's killing me so much

Only when you leave
I need to love you
And when the action has all gone
I'm just a little fool enough to need you
A fool enough to love

Only when you leave you'll leave in danger
Oh I'll make sure that your pay
So give a little passion to a stranger
Take this soul all away

@Benny Robles INDEED !! brilliant comment bro !!!!!!

Benny Robles

Music came into the world 1980, and left 1989. Before and after, mankind never knew what music was.

@Schrotti uwe Tony Hadley is an effing GOD! I loved Spandau Ballet in the 80's as a teenager and all these years later? It hasn't gone away, it's only gotten stronger! These guys RULE! Still love Tony and Spandau Ballet in 2021 as I did back in the 80's! :-)
